Any of you lads have or have had travel sickness and beat it?

I'm starting a job in January that is further than my current and I'd want to use that time on public transport doing something useful like reading. The problem is I can go about 1 minute of reading while moving before I feel dizzy and get a headache. I'm fairly certain it would then evolve into a migraine.

Looking out the window will get fairly boring.

A few practical suggestions spring to mind. If you need glasses, wear them. Similarly, books with larger and easier to read print are likely to be less aggravating. Experiment with facing different directions and places on the vehicle and see what works best for you. If you don't want to take medication, I've found ginger really helps as an antiemetic.

The nausea, in my experience, is actually caused by trying to hold the book too steady. Your inner ear feels your body moving, but you're focused on a book you're doing your best to hold still. It's these mixed signals that make you feel sick. Personally I relax my hands and arms so the book moves along with any bumps or swaying.

I got over it just through repeated exposure. When I started taking flying lessons I would get it quite badly, but by the time I got my licence it was no longer an issue.

It would be unpleasant to put yourself through it, but you could find that by just forcing yourself to do it every day (stopping well before you actually vomit of course) could get your body used to the sensation.

The missus combats this by sort of leaning her head towards the window, so the movement outside is still in her periphery while she's reading. In my mind that seems like it'd make you feel worse, but it works for her. She's a bit odd though.

Work it out in terms of cycles. You're going to want to run half a gram a week or 250mg e3d. Your cycle will be twelve weeks long, so you're looking at 2ml / week x 12 weeks = 24ml or roughly three bottles of gear. Don't forget your PCT.

3936 Fat bastard weight loss thread
Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

Mate is that a RHR taken when you're sitting in bed after waking up after a good night's kip or a "RHR" taken at fuck knows when after a day of caffeine, commuting, steak fucking bakes and god knows what else?

No one should be waking up with a RHR of 90 unless you're really making waves as a next generation pharmacological power user / using K Cider as your bedtime tipple or have some kind of serious heart issue. (Obviously I fucking hope it's not the second one as you haven't mentioned anything of that kind but Jesus lad, if your RHR is 90 standing up and going to the fridge is basically sending you into tachycardia. Go see a fucking doctor, sharpish).

>Go see a fucking doctor

I've seen plenty of doctors. It's fine, apparently. It's definitely about 90. Blood pressure is great, too. Post surgery a few years ago I was sat at 125 while lying in bed, and also on morphine. (no, really) They were checking my vitals every hour or so and did a couple of EKGs and nobody was particularly concerned. I was pretty fucking concerned, to be honest, but I was told it was high but not unusual, especially considering my normal RHR was already high.

I haven't done drugs in about six years and I don't drink, or have anxiety or a bad heart or anything. I'm 'healthy but a bit odd' according to medical professionals.

Well if you've done echos and EKGs and a treadmill stress test and nothing worrying came up who's a random prick on the internets to say otherwise? Cholesterol and blood pressure being good is good news, maybe get your triglycerides and most importantly your homocysteine levels checked (just badger your gp until they sign the damn bloodwork papers).

If those all check out then I guess your ticker just likes to tick a little bit faster than normal.

I've been back to eating refined carbs for a few weeks after losing 15kg on four months of keto and it's staggering how hungry I feel all the time now.

I'm going go to back to keto and investigate a cyclic keto diet so I can binge drink on the weekends. I never really missed carby food when I was on the diet but I did miss beer, so maybe I can have my cake and eat it too.

I sometimes use a mask I purchased for this very purpose from the Cambridge Mask Company.

One noticeable difference while wearing it out and about is that people are unable to see you smile at them. So if you catch someone's eye and want to be friendly, or bump into someone and want to look apologetic, you can't. It's quite dramatic how being bereft of that single facial expression can suddenly make you a social outcast, quite apart from wearing something odd in the first place.

>People who pump themselves full of steroids then stand in front of a mirror all day aren't exactly the same as people who get a body like that through hard work alone.

I don't see why they wouldn't be at that point, I struggle to think of the job that would warrant someone passively developing a body like that, someone has to be going out of their way for some reason to develop that body, either because they are highly competitive or out of ascetics, and at that level of obsession I don't see why one is any more virtuous than the other. Mike Tyson was an absolute daemon at the height of his career but if you ignore the money, could you imagine your life being this heavily devoted to a few minutes of fighting, that isn't hyperbole either Tyson had 23 professional fights where he knocked out his opponent in the first round a lot of those in under a minute.

Diabetic lad here.


I want to cure my type 2 diabetes before it turns me into a rotting zombie. The doctors do not want to hear any of it, they just want to pump me full of Metformin, Lantus and Novorapid.

Here's my plan: intermittent fasting, no food allowed from 8PM to 12AM. 1000 calories every day, mainly beans, rice, green vegetables, lean meat. Only drinks allowed are coffee or tea without milk or sugar, sparkling water.

Following this guidelines, I had my blood sugar at 7, without taking any insulin or metformin. I am going to speak with my diabetic nurse next week and ask what she thinks of it.

Any advice?

4602 Health benefits of following a vegan diet
Alright lads

Wondering if there's anyone on this who can shed any light on the health benefits/drawbacks of following a vegan or otherwise plant-based diet?

Reason I'm asking is that anything I find backing up my own experience seems a bit quacky or otherwise contains a bit of an agenda. Nutritional advice on the internet is mental.

Thoughts?

For myself, I cut out the shite at the end of December, and have noticed a lot of positive changes. My reasons for doing so were that I was getting a lot of colds, flus, coughs, fevers and the like. Since then, I haven't had a sniffle, I've lost 4 stone and my erectile dysfunction disappeared.

However, I'm not sure if those are a result of introducing a lot of veg, or a result of cutting out the mince and cheese.

>There are also plenty of vegans who don't really like cooking, and still manage to eat pretty well with minimal effort

This was what I've always wondered about. I'm a cheflad so when I think 'vegan' I think about lots of lentil and bean soaking, lots of roasting aubergines, and lots of complicated japanese tofu dishes. I suppose the reality for someone who isn't a food wanker like myself it's closer to quorn (or whatever else if that's not vegan) sausages and chips, but for some reason I never thought about that until now.

As someone who has to design menus I've always been very conscious of the limited choices you lot have in 'regular' restaurants. I'm sure there's only so many bowls of risotto one person can eat. I know it's getting better these days, but I still work hard to offer interesting options wherever I can.

I've been thinking about this a lot, really. As a professional I'm quite confident that I understand the wants and needs of people like me, i.e. meat eaters - I have that sixth sense for what people want on a menu, but it's always meat centric. Even my veggie plates often end up being adapted from meat based dishes - which is why I've been considering going vegan for a decent amount of time, maybe half a year minimum, so I can learn what it is you really 'want' when that's your daily diet. Not to mention I suspect it'll be cheaper and probably healthier for me, as I think about my fridge full of chorizo and fatty calf's liver and so on.

Sage for being a wanker and musing about the culinary mindset of a vegan as if you're an alien. Hopefully you get what I mean.

Personally, my favourite meals tend to be similar to thali. They're not necessarily very complicated, but they have a variety of distinct tastes and textures. I appreciate that cooking and plating lots of little things is a pain in the arse in a commercial kitchen, but some simple additions can make a big difference - some crunchy raw peppers in lemon juice or vinaigrette, a crispy little puri or some tortilla chips, a blob of chutney or relish, a little nest of grated carrot or sprouted seeds, a sprinkle of nuts. If my plate looks fresh and colourful, I'm probably happy.

One thing I've noticed in restaurants is that there's never just a nice big salad, it's always one that's intended to be served with a meat or substitute (halloumi is the 'in' thing right now), or otherwise something vegan that's still somehow pumped full of salt, fat and sugar through overly rich dressings.

It's not even a proper whinge though, but I'd like it if, when I'm dragged to a restaurant by the missus or mates that I can just enjoy the veg for what it is, cos it tastes nice enough to me as is.

That's just me though, as I enjoy simple food. It feels like there's a bit of a concerted effort to overcomplicate food even in the chains. Even the normal pubs round here are peddling sweet potato and halloumi like it's going out of fashion.

4553 Rests between reps
I've been doing a workout consisting of chin up, dip, squat, stiff deadlift, curl, OHP, and calf raise all for one set of 20.

Instead of just bouncing the weight up and own and cranking out the reps as fast as possible I've been doing the reps with a short pause after each one. It's about 5 seconds or 1-2 breaths. It takes about 3 mins to do each set of 20.

By slowing down and doing each rep individually it improves the mind-muscle connection and prevents you from getting too out of breath. Total workload is also higher since the rests allow you to use more weight. One set done in this fashion is probably worth 2 or 3 sets in normal continuous style.

Ok, the more I've examined your theory the less sense it makes to me. My max OHP is 67.5kg: 75% of that would be ~50kg. I can in no way do 20 reps of this, or even close. With bench I'd be doing 75kg and again, not even close. Ditto for every other lift without even getting started on chucking pause sets in there.

And why would anyone know or want to know their 1RM for bicep curls? It's an accessory, not a main lift, and one that's notoriously hard not to cheat on. And people cheat on it like the Dickens anyway, how often have you seen some jackass loading 50kg or what have you onto a barbell and practically throwing their whole body forwards to get it up? I'll admit this can be worth doing to overload the eccentric but it's not a clean lift in any way. I'm inclined to think you are woefully underestimating your 1RMs.

For all the people complaining that SS is a strength program unsuited to the everyday gymgoer, bear in mind that you will still get loads of those gainz you're seeking from it. Moreover when you improve your overall strength you're increasing the total volume you can lift for hypertrophy anyway. And you'll be learning good form which will protect you against injury.

This thread is baffling.

4575 Low test
The other day a friend suggested I had a testosterone deficiency due to how "soft" I am physically. I looked it up online and it struck a chord. I'm overweight, with fairly pronounced breasts and love handles. Even when I was underweight, my breasts and love handles were always disproportionately large. I've also been comparing myself with other fat men, and my breasts are perkier and more female looking than typical man boobs. So I'm going to go to my doctor and ask for a testosterone test.

Have any of you lot had any success with getting treatment for low testosterone?

All in balance with your other hormones. Women have much lower testosterone, but they have other womanly hormones doing womanly things instead. You do supposedly live longer without testosterone but it has plenty of adverse effects on an otherwise healthy male not to have it.

Basically, there's "low testosterone" like in slim effeminate dudes like me- I might not be a muscular 'ard lad but I'm sure to have a full head of hair well into my 60s. And then there's low testosterone like in OP's case where it pretty much deforms you, he should have a much higher amount than he has so he's starting to look like a 1700s opera boy.

Well...yeah. I'll usually add 10 but honestly 5 is probably more sensible. I like to do reps to failure though so I have a very good sense of my capabilities as it is. I can often tell half way though my first set that I'm going to find it too easy.

Do you look at pictures of pretty girls before working out to motivate yourself?

(A good day to you Sir!)

Cardio is far easier when you've got a good piece of music to keep in time with. Fast, aggressive hip hop seems to keep me going.

Not really, but I've noticed I seem to push harder when there's a particularly fit woman in my eyeline at the gym. I suppose it makes sense on a base animalistic level, but it's still odd, isn't it?

is it? I'm not sure why you exercise but for me part of it is to stand a better chance of shagging beautiful women, so being reminded of the end goal is inspiration to keep me going.

A picture of Ryan Newman when she was 14. I wonder if you're the same OP who was banned twice for posting pictures of that 12-year-old child model on /fit/ (and cross-posting).

4540 working in the sun
I'm about to have to spend a few days working like a bastard in the sun. Last year, doing the same job, I gave myself quite annoying heatstroke - stopped sweating, started shivering, brain went a bit squiffy and had very annoying muscle cramps the following nights. This happened both days we baled.
So, this year, I'll be drinking much more, but other than that, I can't really see how to make things much better. I can't sanely take breaks or sit under air-con. (Chasing a tractor, making hay while the sun shines, so a lot of throwing bales around, and generally jogging along, doing manual stuff, fixing things that break). I plan to start earlier in the day this time, but that involves getting the other person to get their arse in gear. It's not a given.
So - any hints on avoiding the pain that is heat stroke / heat exhaustion? I'm easily fit enough to do what needs doing, but the heat is a fucker.

I recommend High5 zero tabs, they make water 'more water' . Water is a fucking bastard to carry (1L = 1Kg) and I find the electrolyte tabs make up for more water carried without.

Agreed.

Evans Cycles are selling the Powerbar versions of these for less than a quid a tube at the moment. Certainly worth it.

Ah, sorry.

Not surprising, I bought about 8 tubes when I saw the price.

I'm not sure whether to post this here or in emo, because I feel on the brink of just giving up. I don't know how to go on, I'm trying the services but they don't care. I'm desperate.

I am a 26 year old male, I am 10.7st and 5'10. I suffer from extreme health anxiety. It's usually an obsession with cancer. The past 3-4 months I have had a pain in my left hand side, To the left of my belly button.(or 'my' right, looking down). It's a sharp pain, feels quite pinpoint (literally the edge of my belly button moving outwards), but is difficult to recreate by pushing down on the area. I've found it a few times but it's not easy. It seems to come and go, and can sometimes feel more generalised in the area. As if it's spreading outwards. Simply put I am terrified to the point of non function that it is some sort of cancer.

I have no noticeable weight loss, I have not lost my appetite. I have not thrown up. No blood in stool. There is no history of stomach cancer in my family. However I do have Ibs and have been gassy for a while. Stool can be soft/pat like, or sort of rough and jagged. I've been to 3 doctors. All of which looked at my history and rolled their eyes. They all did a feel of the area and said there was nothing abnormal. The last Dr (yesterday) gave me laxitives because she said my colon was very full. But I've had this issue for months, I doubt it has always been.

Mental health is a real issue for me and I have been referred in Jan, but no reply as of yet.

The pain is not getting better. It seemed to dissappear for about a week or 2,but its come back as bas as ever.

I feel so unbelievably unhappy with my life I am worried. I can't sustain this life of worry and depression. I leave my desk at work and cry, I am looking for re assurance. I am begging for it in fact.

I'd suggest getting in touch with Anxiety UK. They have a telephone advice line and offer a range of reduced-cost therapy services.

https://www.anxietyuk.org.uk/

The evidence suggests that good self-help books can be almost as effective as face-to-face therapy. Most local libraries now have a Books on Prescription section, with a selection of self-help books recommended by health professionals. The recommended book for health anxiety is Overcoming Health Anxiety by Rob Wilson and David Veale.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Overcoming-Health-Anxiety-David-Veale/dp/1845298241

If you're feeling really down, I'd encourage you to call The Samaritans on 116 123. Calls are free on any network and they're available 24/7. You don't have to be suicidal to call - they're ready to listen to whatever you have to say.
